The Valley Home News staff has received a disturbing piece of news. It may not be disturbing to readers but it is to us. It is in regards to a piece of news that was reportedly sent to us for inclusion in the Valley Home News and was not included. This is so ridiculous that it could be labeled funny but it is not. This reporter has been begging for Valley Home News for this column for over 35 years and has spent over 1800 Sunday evenings writing the VHN for the enjoyment of our readers.

The news can be emailed to me at chitons7@gmail.com; it can be telephoned to me at 847-5822; it or can be mailed or delivered to me at Valley Home News, 11424 Pioneer Ave., Oakdale, CA 95361-7749. I have had this number and address for 37 years and one of them should get through.
